Labia Minora Reduction
My name is Adrian Richards. I’m a plastic surgeon based here in the United Kingdom, and I’m the Surgical Director of Aurora Clinics. In this video, I’m going to be taking you through a labia minora reduction, also known as a labiaplasty. Our patient today is concerned about what she perceives as an enlarged labia which are causing her some discomfort and some embarrassment. I’m going to be taking you through a technique of a wedge excision used to recreate and reduce the labia.
This is the start of the procedure. You can just see here I’m demonstrating the enlarged labia on both sides which are really quite symmetrical in this case. Here you can see I’m just marking up the area. I’m going to use a posterior wedge excision in this case on both sides. I’m just marking up the tissue there that I’m going to remove. I’m going to leave this area of tissue. So I’m going to a remove a wedge of tissue and then reflect the tip of the labia backwards to make it much smaller and neater. Again, this is the tissue I’m planning on removing, which is this wedge of tissue which I’m just demonstrating there at the back.
This is with the operation completed. I’ve removed that tissue, and you can see we’ve got quite a natural appearance with the edges stitched together with absorbable stitches.
This is the tissue that I’ve removed. First of all from the right, you can see the wedge of tissue on that side, and here on the left, you can see a very similar wedge of tissue which I have removed.
